Is laptop RAM backwards compatible?
Hello, I am going to upgrade the ram in my laptop from 512MB (2x256) to 1 gb. The RAM i have now is cas 3 pc2700. Is pc3200 ram backwards compatible? It is a about the same price and I figure i might as well buy faster ram in case i want to use it in my other system later. what do you think?

py pc2700 is running at 2100, so i dont see why your 3200 wouldnt run 2700. it should be fine, unless your specific laptop is a booger. and i believe there are a few that are, check the service manual for your specific one if you can find it. also a post in the laptops section might yield more results.Student of Electronic Engineering as of September 20, 2010

all ram that is of the same type (ie DDR DDR2, SDram) is backwards compatible. The system will just downclock it.
